Great Hotel”

Comfort, Pool, Grounds

Overall the hotel is fantastic. The gym is a little lacking if you are looking to workout. There also isn't much in the area but you're in Aswan for the historical sights not the city itself.

Very good for a couple of days”

This is a beautifully located historic building. Some of the rooms are very large and luxurious. We were offered an upgrade for $50 per night. The price we paid with agoda was the lowest in our party. The staff are very pleasant and courteous but some could do with a little more training. The food is very average, which for Egypt is a recommendation. Cape bay was the only drinkable wine we found . Take care in Egypt with the date of white wine as it turns to sherry after 18 months. Also don’t order non local gin etc it will set you back more than you bargained. Maybe book any excursions with your travel agent or online as the hotel adds a large premium. Breakfast is good with eggs cooked to order. I would return

Perfect setting on the Nile”

Excellent Location and setting along with good service

Away from the hustle of Cairo. Aswan is good place to relax and take in the Nile. The hotel is of a high standard with well maintained grounds and responsive staff. Comparative value at this time in Egypt is not so good as the don't seem to have adjusted their prices to match demand. Better value to be found.
